Weekend Results: Matt Horwich TKOs Jake Rosholt

Horwich (26-16-1), who submitted former UFC title challenger Thales Leites in August and lost to Eric Schambari at Bellator 28 in September, stopped Rosholt with strikes in the third round. The loss placed Rosholt at 1-1 since his release one year ago from the UFC.
